Since Dec. 24, I’ve received half a dozen reports of red balls of fire moving slowly across the ski and then accelerating vertically at incredible speeds.
The first report came to me on Dec. 26 from a Capreol resident who reported that, the previous evening, she and other members of her family stood outside for almost five minutes watching a large red ball of fire move slowly across the sky.
There was no sound and the object was moving extremely slowly, too low to be a bolide meteor or fireball. It was about the size of the moon at arm’s length.
The witnesses kept on watching as it headed towards the city around between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
On Dec. 28, I received an email about bright red balls falling to earth then heading straight up on Dec. 25. The writer’s father took images of 10 or 12 red balls, which he saw in the sky around 7 p.m. as well.
Again, on Jan. 3, I received an email from a North Bay resident and avid UFOlogist who reported five orange-red lights moving down Trout Lake from the Redbridge side.
The lights danced about, converged back to one and silently floated back south-east towards the lake end. The following day, pillars of light were spotted off towards the Callander Bay-Cranberry peninsula area.
At the same time that all of this was taking place, a friend of mine and his girlfriend were contacted by another witness who was driving on Bancroft.
As he was on the phone with them, he described seeing an object moving over the area of Second Avenue and Bancroft and urged them to go out and look.
Both groups of people watched from different areas of the city as the reddish object moved horizontally until it came to a stop, flared or pulsed a few times and then shot straight up or disappeared.
If any of your readers have witnessed any of these events, they are asked to contact me so that I may collect all pertinent data regarding these anomalous sightings and make it all available on my website, noufors.com.
